Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!

By influence of the Light divine
Let thy own light to others shine.
Reflect all Heaven’s propitious ways
In ardent love, and cheerful praise.

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

My voice returned overnight. I am so thankful that I am among the 95% in this one thing. Living the rest of my days, never to raise my voice in song again was a
very difficult thought! Caleb fussed during church today, and I was in the foyer walking around with him. I started to sing to him, and he stared at me, then broke into the sweetest, most joyful smile I've ever seen on his face! As if to say, "I missed that sound, Mama!"

"Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God's peace shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. I know how to be abased and live humbly in straitened circumstances, and I know also how to enjoy plenty and live in abundance. I have learned in any and all circumstances the secret of facing every situation, whether well-fed or going hungry, having a sufficiency and enough to spare or going without and being in want. I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me. I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency." Philippians 4:6-7, 13-14 Amplified

You dance over me
While I am unaware
You sing all around
But I never hear the sound

Lord, I'm amazed by You
How You love me!

You paint the morning sky
with miracles in mind
My hope will always stand
For You hold me in Your hand

How wide
How deep
How great
Is Your love for me!
